Deconstructed Cajun Black Bean Burgers With Sweet Potato Oven Fries
Since I have been concentrating on more whole foods and less carbs, new recipes keep coming in my mind. Last night, despite being home alone, I decided to make something delicious and creative. A few days ago I talked about the same types of food that are available to vegans at Mexican restaurants, well how about I talk about foods available at pubs and burger places? Not too much to offer except for a "veggie" burger or otherwise known as a "mystery" veggie burger. Sometimes I wonder what all those because they all seem sometimes generic. Who likes generic. Take Chili's restaurants. I like that they offer BOCA burgers and a Black Bean burger because at least that is more than one choice. I have a local tap room that serves a delicious veggie burger that is created by the chef, but otherwise, every other place has the same patty.
Last night I decided to try my hand at my own black bean burger with a Cajun flair. It was gluten-free and full of veggies. I left off the bun, thus the deconstructed part, and placed the burger on a bed of fennel / romaine lettuce with then a layer of tomatoes and avocado. Nothing can be too compelete without the fries so I made the low glycemic option of potatoes by making sweet potato. Regular potatoes have too much sugar so sweet potatoes are the better option
